    Re: Can you list down the shortcut keys which are specially introduced in Windows 8 Operating System?

    There are quite a few new shortcuts have been introduced in Windows 8 apart from the many shortcuts which are available in the previous version of Windows, the shortcut keys are as follows:-

    Windows Key + T – Dumps you back to Desktop Mode and cycles through your open windows on the taskbar.
    Windows Key + Tab – Opens up the left-hand “Switch List”
    Windows Key + Q – Opens up Windows 8’s global search utility within Metro.
    Windows Key + C – Opens up the right-hand Charms Bar
    Windows Key + I – Opens up your ever-important Settings Menu
    Windows Key + Shift + . – Docks the app to the left, middle, or right side of the screen with each press.
    Windows Key + M – Minimize all applications and goes to the desktop.

    One good enhancement as done in the previous most used shortcut key that is printscreen key where when it is pressed along with Windows key it takes the print of the screen and automatically saves it to the Pictures folder, so there is no need anymore of pasting it into the MS Paint and then saving it as the picture.
